Meet for late Rose

The Cayman Islands Athletic Association launches its 2013/14 track season with the staging of the Damion Rose Sprint & Distance Track Meet this weekend.

It is at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 9 a.m.

This meet is dedicated to the memory of Damion Rose, a talented athlete who sadly drowned off Public Beach earlier this year.

He touched many lives in and out of the track and field arena and will be missed by all.

The association is asking all athletes, their parents and well-wishers to participate and to pay tribute to Rose.

Events being contested are javelin, long jump, discus, 3,000 meters, 150m, 1000m, 600m, 1500m and 300m.
